[ ♪ theme ♪ ] [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> john: good morning. this is the "bill press show." i'm john fuglesang filling in for bill with you until 9:00 a.m. eastern time. it is a pleasure to be here in bill's seat. he will be back tomorrow. for today, there's so much to talk about from last night's debate between scott walker and elizabeth -- scott brown and elizabeth warren. it is a little early. and the winner has already pronounced to be david gregory. mitt romney's trash collector is talking. paul ryan has a hard time doing his math homework and best of all, a man with a doubly phallic name has endorsed governor romney. first, here's lisa. >> good morning everyone. it's not about whether you win or lose. it's how you play the game unless you're running for president then it is about winning but not according to mitt romney. in his version of reality where the polls are made up and the results don't matter he says the debates are about something bigger than winning. they're a chance for each candidate to p
and we need reform to that end. john mccain, thankfully, has been one representing reform could two years ago, john mccain was the one who pushed so hard for the fannie mae and freddie mac reform measures. they did not want to listen to him and would not go to the reform needed then, think that the alarm has been heard and there will be greater oversight thanks to john mccain's bipartisan efforts. even suspended his own campaign to make sure that he was putting politics aside and putting the country first. >> and senator biden, how, as vice-president, would you work to do with the polarization in washington? >> that is what i have done my whole career. dealing with violence against women and putting more police officers on the street to try to get something done about the genocide and what is going on in bosnia, i have been able to reach across the aisle. but it is fair to say that i have almost as many friends in the republican side of the aisle as i do in the democratic side of the aisle. until two weeks ago, it was two months ago that john mccain said that the fundamental view of the e
-lehrer news hour" and "frontline." my colleagues on the panel are -- john margolis of "the chicago tribune," tom brokaw of nbc news, and brit hume of abc news. the importance of tonight's debate is underscored by two facts. both george bush and michael dukakis said their selections of a running mate would reveal a lot about themselves. and based on the history since world war ii, there is almost a 50-50 chance that one of the two men here tonight will become president of the united states. the candidates are senator dan quayle, the republican nominee, and senator lloyd bentsen, the democratic nominee. [applause] >> for the next 90 minutes we will be questioning the candidates following a format designed and agreed to by representatives of the two campaigns. however, there are no restrictions on the questions that my colleagues and i may ask this evening. by prior agreement between the two candidates, the first question goes to senator quayle, and you have two minutes to respond. senator, you have been criticized, as we all know, for your decision to stay out of the vietnam war, for your po
'll ask him about it. and we'll hear from conservative columnist john fund and michael gerson of the "washington post." analysis from our own norah o'donnell and john dickerson. then with the baseball post-accept under way and washington's team headed to the play-offs for the first time in 79 years, we'll talk baseball with the dodgers' legendary tony larussa, tony lasorda, manager of last year's world-champion st. louis cardinals. jane leavy, who literally wrote the book on mickey mantle. and peter gammons of the mlb network. it's batter up on "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: and good morning, again. welcome to peacethe nation. david axelrod, of course, is a senior campaign strategist, the senior campaign strategist for president obama. thank you for coming this morning. and we're joined by "cbs this morning" cohost norah o'donnell, and political director john dickerson. i'm just going to start, mr. axelrod, with the obvious question-- what happened? >> well, what happened was the p
democrats are saying what debate, after the jobs report. >>> we're joined by john avlon, senior analyst with "the daily beast." these allegations that the numbers are somehow cooked are shocking and dangerous, especially from somebody as prominent as jack welch. what does it say about partisanship in the country? >> it says that it starts to rot people's brains. the theory is just -- we need a good name for this. i nominate job nutters. but this really is ridiculous. this is -- first things first, this is good news for the country. and, yes, it benefits the president because it adds to argument. it takes away the argument that unemployment rate's been over 8%. it's a positive sign for the country. and frankly, it gives the president a boost in the wake of a terrible debate performance. but bottom line, it's a sign that the trend is moving away from the debt sweep we've dealt with. >> let me pick up on that. some democrats are saying what debate? how much of a boost does it really give the president, given the lackluster nature of his performance the other night? >> it doesn't give the p
our nation's capital. i'm john fugelsang filling in today and i'm delighted to be here with you. this is october 1 the birthday of mark mcguire and 88th 88th birthday of former president jimmy carter. it's cold in our nation's capitol but we are very pleads to be talking with you about the issues that matter most. please feel free to call us. >> good morning everyone. both candidates are gearing up for the first presidential debate. president obama will stay in nevada for the next few days to wrap up final preparations. he campaigned in las vegas last night to a group of 11,000 supporters and in an effort to manage his expectations said he's just an okay debater. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. >> you will. >> i don't know about that. president romney is a good debater. >> that is in response to reports that romney is prepping and plans on taking jabs at the president. obama spokeswoman is saying don't expect the president to fire any blows and he looks forward to continuing his conversation with the american people.
's bring in our "news nation" political panel today. john harwood and zachary ca caribel. thank you, gentlemen, for joining me. john, i want to come to you first because i want to play what president obama and governor romney said just a short time ago reacting to the jobs reports. let me play those first, both of them. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate as you noted this year has come down very, very slowly. it's come down nonetheless. the reason it came down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> so john harwood, before we talk about this back and forth, i want to talk about the psychological impact of the rate falling below 8% today. >> it's positive for obama and say that the rate is where it was when i took office. i don't think we should be under any illusions. 7.8% is a high unemploy
" magazine, white house correspondent, who has the cover story in this week's issue. john harwood, cnbc chief white house correspondent, and holding it down in new york city, msnbc political analyst karen finney. john, are you there in the spin room. as you know, the spinning begins before either candidate has spoken. we've seen both parties attempt to deflate expectations. but isn't the biggest challenge for mitt romney, not what he plans to say tonight, but how he explains what he's already said, in particular, his derision for 47% of the people in this country? >> reporter: certainly, martin, he's going to have to address that and try to diffuse that issue. look, this is an incredibly important event in the campaign. tens of millions of people will watch these two guys standing side by side. mitt romney is behind, but behind by three points. he could still win this race. he's got to figure out a way to both hurt obama, help himself, make credible arguments his economic plan will make the lives of 100% of americans better, and try to establish some connection with the american people he has
to "early start." i'm zoraida sambolin. >> i'm john berman. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. the big story this morning, it is go time. in just 16 hours all eyes will be on denver for the first presidential debate. president obama will be making his case for four more years and mitt romney trying to convince the country he is the better man for the job. now, right now it looks like voters need convincing on both sides because in a brand new cnn poll of polls it shows a very close race. the president maintaining a razor-thin three-point lead with a month to go at this point. our cnn political director mark preston is live from denver right in the middle of it all. mark, you have new details on what to expect tonight. >> well, john, yes. there's no arguing, this is the most important moment of this presidential debate. in just a few hours as you said, mitt romney, barack obama squaring off here in denver. it will be a 90-minute debate. it will cover six different segments. most of it, though, john, is going to be on the economy. there's going to be three segments to focus on the economy. one
. that was the really, really famous one. it was sweaty, dick nixon sick with a fever against polished john f. kennedy. legend has it that richard nixon heard that jfk was not going to get makeup from cbs for that debate, and so nixon said, well, i won't have any makeup either, then. even though he was running a 102 degree fever and not only was nixon ill that day, it turned out that when jfk turned down the cbs makeup offer, it was because he apparently had his own makeup arrangements already made. and so we got jfk with makeup and no fever, we got richard nixon with no makeup and a fever. what we got on tv in the first televised presidential debate in our nation's history was beauty and the beast. right? of course, jfk went on to win that election that year, whether or not it was because of the debate, i don't know, but thus was born the entire school of punditry that says it's all about the optics and watching things with the sounds off and all that existentially exhausting stuff we still say today. but here is the relevant context for understanding what happened last night. when mitt romney beat p
, in the key battle ground state of florida. and senator-- the national correspondent john roberts joins us live now from the city apopka. and the governor is scheduled to attend a rally. tell us about it. >> we've got a little bit after florida thunderstorm popped up and expected to be gone by the time the governor hits the stage here, and travelling on the i-4 corridor where elections are won and lost in florida and even up, rasmussen has romney up by a couple of points and trying to keep the momentum going from the great debate performance and trying to show voters he's not the scary guy that the obama campaign makes him out to be. and stopping by in a cuban restaurant and shaking hands with the folks and getting takeout and at the a campaign event in st. petersburg looking back on the president's debate performance which many saw as a flop. >> and did you hear what he had to say? i didn't either. i kept looking for a specific plan as to what he was going to do to create jobs and i heard more of the same, stimulus, hiring more government workers and raising taxes and those things don't c
. they need to impress undecided voters most. john king is at the magic wall for us. zero in on the stage where the candidates hope to gain grnd. >> the burden you would have to say is higher on mitt romney trailing in the race for the 270 electoral votes. they're debating in colorado, a dead heat. but the president has taken the edge in wisconsin, ohio, virginia and in florida. governor romney e needs to change this dynamic around because if the president were to keep two of those four, he would be almost impossible to stop. >> thank you. let's go to the debate hall where candy crowley is standing by. she's one of the moderators in the 2012 presidential debate series. the focus tonight on domestic issues, especially the economy. >> absolutely. this is parched into six, 15-minute segsegments, if you w. if first three, health care, then government. very broad suggests which would include any number of questions. each candidates gets two minutes to answer and then the rest of the time will be in discussing it. i want to bring in jessica yellin now. i know you've got an exclusive look at how
the debates. did he end up being president? no, he did not. >> john kerry. >> john kerry won the debates. he also did not end up being president. >> yeah, but, karen, i think what's different this time around is the absolute falsification that took place last night. it was breath-taking. it was almost -- well, it was shakespearean in terms of its performance. >> and you know what, martin, to that point, i think part of whether where i'd like to see the obama folks take this message is, we have already had a president who is very comfortable, and a vice president by the way, looking us straight in the eye and lying to us and sending men and women to war. do we want to have another president who can stand on the stage for 90 minutes and lie to the american people? i don't think that's what we want. i think that's dangerous for this country. i think they're really going to have to go hard at that. unfortunately, not a lot of people are reading the fact checks, right? we all know and a lot of the mi knew sha of the facts and where he was wrong and wasn't wrong, i don't know how much people are p
of that debate wednesday night. >> big. think john kennedy of 1960, think ronald reagan in 1980. it's possibly that big because the president seemed to be on a glide path towards re-election and all of a sudden here comes the raging bull, mitt romney, out of the dark and they run for the safety exits instead of counterpunches and getting him hard. what happened to barack obama? i'm not certain. i don't know. but i know this, if he comes to the next two debates with the same demeanor and passive resistance, he's losing. >> you called it one of the worst performances of the time? >> one of the most inept performances by an incumbent president i've ever seen. i'm mystified. we do know these things about barack obama. we know he doesn't like to confront people. we know that -- chris: he doesn't like to fight with hillary clinton. >> he doesn't like to. he's really worried about appearing angry in public and that really isn't his natural demeanor but that was unilateral disarmament and was stunning. when mitt romney gives you an opening to talk about romney's accountant and doesn't say you have a t
right then and there. teddy won. senator john mccain was tweeting his celebration. this was a huge deal in washington. our congratulations to teddy. "morning joe" starts right now. >> does anybody out there think that the big problem we had is that there was too much oversight and regulation of wall street? because if you do, then governor romney is your candidate. >> i will not reduce the share paid by high-income individuals. i know that you and your running mate keep saying that, and i know it's a popular thing to say with a lot of people, but it's just not the case. look, i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. >> you said you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas? look, i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant, but the idea that you get a break for shippin
concert. earth wind and fire, bon jovi, elton john, stevie wonder. those are some of the headliners at a fund-raising concert for the president later this evening. hold on. we're live from l.a. in just a minute, the preview. >>> just 24 hours the meningitis outbreak has grown by almost one-third. the cdc is confirming now 91 cases of fungal meningitis in nine states, including seven deaths. that's 27 new cases since yesterday. nearly half of the new cases in michigan. fungal meningitis is linked to contaminated steroid injections used to ease back and neck pain. the company that contributed the steroid issued a voluntary recall for all its products. >>> it's presidential election day in venezuela. analysts say this is the strongest challenge yet to the 13-year rule of hugo chavez. his opponent is young, 40 years old, considered a moderate. many venezuelans living here traveled long distances to vote absentee. >>> people marched through ma tl drid in the video you almost saw there. opposition to spending cuts program worth billions of dollars. also protests of dozens of other cities.
strategist julian epstein and john harwood, chief washington correspondent and political writer for "the new york times." julian, so, the bureau of labor statistics is now to be lumped in with false memory syndrome, satanic abuse, and the abduction of children byu fos in terms of its accuracy and trustworthy iness? >> we've talked about the archie bunker wing of the waert. now we have the paranoid paranormal wing of the party. this is the same group of people that don't believe in evolution. this is the same group of people that don't believe in climate change. these are the same people who are complaining about the poll numbers being biased, and now they're complaining about a methodology that is very open and transparent and that has been used for decades in terms of computing the employment numbers. and, you know, this is to democrats this is music to our ears. when you start complaining about the polls and you start complaining about employment number methodology, it's a very, very clear sign that the other side is losing the debate and they have to go to these kind of, you know, bush le

. in nevada, the president, who has been rehad hersing with massachusetts senator john kerry as romney, went to the hoover dam. >> it's spectacular. i've never seen it before. >> reporter: both left the day's campaigning to their number twos. in charlotte, vice president joe biden was trying to argue that romney would raise taxes on the middle class when he implied that president obama's policies already have hurt. >> how they can justify raising taxes in the middle class that's been buried the last four years, how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes? >> reporter: biden later tried to dig out of that hole. but republicans pounced. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: but the day's events quickly were overshadowed by a 2007 speech of then presidential candidate and senator obama veering off his prepared script before a predominantly black audience he seemed to imply the federal gove

right to tonight's big story. we're with john mccain, former presidential candidate, and he joins me now. welcome to you, senator. >> thank you, piers. >> when it comes to the debate, you were one of the only people, actually, who has debated both barack obama and mitt romney, so you are in a unique place to tell me what you made of both of their performance. whatever way you spin this from the republican side, the job front has to be good news not only for the president but also america, but the number has now gone down to 7.8% for the first time since 8% of his presidency. >> i think that's found to be good news, but i also think you have to take it in the context that 7.8% is still unacceptably high. but it is good news, and i think it's going to be of some help to the president, but certainly with the numbers of unemployed americans we have now, the 23 million, i guess it is, it's still an unacceptable situation. i think the president will concede that. >> jack welsh said today, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so change the numbers. is the
in 2004 when president george w. bush choked in the first of his three debates against john kerry. there was a strong performance against john edwards. cheney took one for the team playing the attack dog and allowing bush to keep his presidential hands clean. although i'd like to see a little more heat from president obama in debate number two, he can still keep it cool and classy while letting biden go all the way off the leash. but even before the first presidential debate, the match-up between the two guys on the bottom of the tickets promise to be a must-watched event. what we saw in the debate between president obama and governor romney was an exchange of ideas. both share a practical approach to stimulating economic growth but have different ways of getting us there. the two guys that we're going to be watching on thursday, pragmatism doesn't begin to describe them. pugilistic, not pragmatic describes these guys. get ready for a clash of the i had i can't logs. they're champions of the sweet science of political and economic thought of their respective parties. the golden bo
you here. dana bash is back us with. and anna navarro, a republican strategist that worked with john mccain and now a cnn contributor. we're glad you're all with us this morning. richard, you know, we have you here this morning on a day -- >> so good to be here this morning. >> a challenging day for the democrats. you saw the debate. you saw what our polls are saying this morning. >> there was a debate last night? >> yeah. >> did the president lose this? >> you know, i think luckily for me this morning history tells us that we don't know really who won or lost in terms of where it moved -- if it moved any votes until many days later. these things have to set in. but clearly, as you have been reporting already this morning and as the pundits were saying last night, i think that romney had from a theatrical perspective a great night. >> we have to wait to see what history says about who won or lost. the polls are crystal clear. 60% think romney won. on the issues, romney way ahead of the president also. who would better handle the deficit. 16-point advantage. economy, a 12-point advant
of the democratic party. i went to ohio, michigan and florida and john mclaughlin helped me. in the last state, there was one more democrat than republican that voted in the exit polls, but the 13 polls in those states have a combined bias of 8 points per democrat. so they're 5 or 6 too much per obottom a. so i believe, like here in virginia, where romney is tide or behind, i think he was significantly ahead. now i think he's very far ahead. ohio, which they had romney behind was a tossup. now i think he will be ahead. i have said from the beginning, greta, nobody else has said it. i have always thought this election would be a solid romney victory on the order of obama's defeat of mccain, a near land slide. >> greta: tomorrow morning in morning, the jobs report comes out, on the serious side, so many americans are without work. that's enormously distressing. there is a political part of that. if that number stays the same as the national average or gets worse, is that going to have any appreciable effect, do you think, on the campaign for the president? >> well, i think tell have the same def
